  • Competition: Premier League
  • Date: Wednesday, 15th May, 2024
  • Kickoff: 20:00 UK / 21:00 CEST
  • Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester)

On Wednesday evening, two Europe-chasing teams, Manchester United and Newcastle, will face off at Old Trafford in Manchester.

Manchester United entered this season with high hopes after winning the Carabao Cup, reaching the FA Cup Finals, finishing 3rd in the Premier League, and securing the Champions League appearance. It seemed that Erik ten Hag was the right man to return them to the top teams in England. However, this season has been nothing less than a disappointment, as the Red Devils are on pace with having one of the worst seasons in the club's history. At this moment, they are 8th with 54 points, three points away from the 6th and 7th placed teams Newcastle and Chelsea. This game is a must-win, but if they fail to win, they will have an alternative route to secure Europe, considering they will face off against Manchester City in the FA Cup Finals. Their FA Cup run is pretty much the only bright spot of the season. 

After a huge last season when they finished 4th, Newcastle also had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, constant injuries and Tonali's suspension prevented them from having another big season. For a big part of the season, they even had to rely on 17-year-old Lewis Miley to start! Still, the Magpies are 6th, and with a positive result here, they will secure at least a Europa Conference League appearance. 

Manchester United vs Newcastle pick: Newcastle to (AH 0) win

Manchester United lost back-to-back games vs Crystal Palace and Arsenal with a 0:5 goal difference! The Red Devils have been really bad lately, winning only against the worst team in the league, Sheffield United, in the last eight Premier League games. 

On the other hand, Newcastle won two of the last three and five of the previous eight matches! Additionally, their only loss during that eigh-game period was against Crystal Palace. Yes, the Magpies have had a bit easier schedule lately, but it is still a very good stretch.

This season, Newcastle won both h2h games. They won 1:0 in the league at home and 3:0 away from it in the Carabao Cup. In both games, the Magpies were significantly better and totally played MU. Additionally, Manchester United won just once in the last six h2h games, and considering the massive difference in form, we believe the Magpies are much closer to winning the upcoming Premier League match.

Manchester United team news

Amad Diallo, who started in the previous game, was forced to leave the field after 70 minutes due to an injury. However, English media reports say it is nothing serious and should be available for the upcoming match.

Still, the Red Devils will have massive problems with injuries as they could miss up to nine (mostly) crucial players: Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes, and Mason Mount, while Lisandro Marinez is questionable with a calf injury. 

Regardless of the results in the last games, it is almost certain that the club will sack Erik ten Hag. According to speculations, he might return to Ajax.

Newcastle team news

In the previous game against Brighton, Alexander Isak was taken off the field in the 68th minute. Many football pundits speculated that this had something to do with media linking the striker with Arsenal. However, the coach, Eddie Howe, said he took him off because he was ill, not because of the transfer speculations.

Like Manchester United, Newcastle will have several injured players who already missed the previous games: Sven Botman, Jamaal Lascelles, Joseph Willock, Lewis Miley, Fabian Schar, Callum Wilson, and Matt Target. Additionally, Sandro Tonali will remain suspended due to breaching the betting rules earlier this season.
